Interesting. I long since gave up on the fragile clip, and have used the reflectors on a baseball cap ever since.

Is there any difference in their effectiveness? I can't say that I ever noticed any.

I've had my TrackClip Pro for about 4 days... actually used in game about twice (amazing btw).

I took my headset off and laid it down on the table and I'm now the owner of a broken TrackClip Pro.

The main arm popped off, but it seemed to clip back on with no major issues. The other joint wasn't so lucky - one side of the internal clip seems to be dead.

Is there anything that can be done. Will gluing it at a fixed angle cause any issues? I also saw in this thread someone from customer support indicated that there might be replacements for upgraded models?

The biggest advantages of the TrackClip Pro is that it provides slightly smoother/precise tracking and a wider range of head movement since it doesn't rely on reflectors.

Send us an email at support@naturalpoint.com with your TrackIR serial number and a picture of your broken TrackClip Pro and we will be able to determine if you're eligible for a replacement. Being only a week since you've had it I'd assume you are, though for international customers that purchased through a dealer we ask that exchanges go through them.
